the white house won't deliver its own budget in time and still wants to raise more taxes. we're about to hear a response from a republican house member. >>> that's not all. fed chief ben bernanke is saying it must raise the debt ceiling and that the fed is going to keep buying bonds for now. on this one-month anniversary of the heinous, awful newtown shootings, the sheriff comes out in favor of banning assault weapons. "the kudlow report" begins right now. >>> first up tonight, president obama slams the republicans. he says no gimmick, no magic coins. just the plain old standoff on the debt ceiling. who is gonna blink first in this? john harwood joins us from washington with the details. good evening. >> good evening. the president used the last news conference of first term to draw an ever-brighter line with congressional republicans on the debt ceiling. they say they want dollar for dollar spending cuts to be matched with an increase in the debt ceiling. the president said i'll negotiate with you, but not over the debt ceiling. he simply is not going to allieu republicans to take th
. it would be progrowth and no more tax hikes by the way. spending and the debt are the top issue of concern for voters. look, these heinous mass murders are not about weapons. question -- why isn't anyone tackling the really tough issue that may be the root causes of these atrocities? such as broken families, such as the absence of fathers who set examples for their sons? such as the loss of faith in our schools? such as our homes and our culture that have lost faith as well. tonight, we are going to talk about the family values breakdown in america. "the kudlow report" begins right now. another key point tonight. for most of the history, america drew at 3.5% per you. the last dozen years however, we have dropped below 2%. and the so-called obama recovery is just a tad above that 2% rate. which should be unacceptable. it is the worst in the post world war ii era. so the question tonight, what's holding back the american economy? here's my quick road map for an economic boom. start off with major cuts in government spending. we should stop paying people not to work. then cut large and small
is hungry for that after getting hosed in that high tax bill. >> i think you're a bit off, larry, respectfully in that republicans i think want to have these spending cuts. but they're picking a strategic battle. and you could be right in saying they're picking the wrong battle. but they don't want to have the spending battle on the debt limit. they want to have it on the cr, that continuing resolution to fund the government for the rest of the year. >> well, i am 100% -- look, i do not want to mess with the debt ceiling. i don't want to mess with that. that's a domestic and international global meltdown. so to that extent i agree. i just didn't hear the rest of the story laid out very coherently regarding spending. i didn't hear it from paul ryan, and i didn't hear it from the leaders. and that's the part i don't get. the debt ceiling, three months, whatever. the continuing resolution, that's a little bit in the weeds. but all right. fine. you can work with that. but i didn't hear them say what that was going to mean for spending, either. >> that's a great point, larry. they're
nothing to do with our inability to govern our own spending and taxes. but anytime one tries to hold it, that is when it is wrong. whatever you want to call it, when you have a moral and constitutional obligation you shouldn't mix it up with things you want to do politically. i come back to you, there is the see quester that was done in late 2011. and on top of that, we have to have a continuing resolution to let the government run. my suggestion is that you give yourself time to get that done. >> maybe we can rise beyond some of our constituentsys which are screaming in our ears don't compromise. >> maybe you can change the order that these fall. if you want to line up where you are spendingwise. but i have to disagree with my buddy charlie and i think the moral obligation here and the way that you keep us from being downgraded how do we tell the markets that we are doing something to tell the debt curve what it is about to do to the country. >> if it looks like you are trying to parcel out, there are 80 million payment accounts in the american government and you are rying to give out
demands the wealthy pay their fair share of taxes. but, he's just another elitist hypocrite when it comes to a fair share of security. protection for their kids, and gun free zones for ours. >> all right. the white house called the ad repugnant and cowardly. i think they are right. can i say something about this partisan back and forth. we have just come out of a heinous mass murder atrocity which is of course a complete national tragedy. all right. is it possible, just once that the republicans and the nra and democrats and the president can stop this cheap unseemly squabbling just once? may we have a civilized conversation about what this nation can do to avoid another horrible sandy hook? all i want, all i want is a civil conversation. there's a lot of very complex pieces here and they need the best minds to figure this out. i just want the squabbling to stop. this is worst than the fiscal squabbling and the debt ceiling. you know why? the stakes are higher. we're talking human lives. those little baby angels. let's try in their memory to figure something out if stead of hurling epitha
